Abstract

Compelling evidence supports the important role of the glutamatergic system in the pathophysiology of major depression and also as a target for rapid-acting antidepressants. However, the functional role of?glutamate?release/transmission?inbehavioral?processes related to depression and antidepressant efficacy remains to be elucidated. In this study,?glutamaterelease?and?behavioral?responses?to tail suspension, a procedure commonly used for inducing?behavioral?despair, were simultaneously monitored in real time. The onset of tail suspension stress evoked a rapid increase in?glutamate?release?in hippocampal field CA3, which declined gradually after its offset. Blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptors by intra-CA3 infusion of MK-801, a non-competitive?NMDA?receptor antagonist, reversed?behavioral?despair. A subpopulation of granule neurons that innervated the CA3 region expressed?leptin?receptors and these cells were not activated by stress.Leptin?treatment dampened tail suspension-evoked?glutamate?release?in CA3. On the other hand, intra-CA3 infusion of?NMDAblocked the?antidepressant-like?effect of?leptin?in reversing?behavioral?despair?in both the tail suspension and forced swim tests, which involved activation of Akt signaling in DG. Taken together, these results suggest that the DG-CA3 glutamatergic pathway is critical for mediating?behavioral?despair?and?antidepressant-like?responses?to?leptin.Molecular Psychiatry advance online publication, 5 August 2014; doi:10.1038/mp.2014.75.
